HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of local wine lovers gathered with more than 30 well-known wine makers Friday night to raise money for a Hub City-based charity which helps to feed the hungry in Mississippi.

They got together at the historic Hattiesburg Train Depot for the 9th annual Purple Parrot Wine Festival.

It was a fund raiser for Extra Table. 

That organization supplies food pantries across the state with healthy food.

Wine makers from the U.S., Europe, Australia and South America participated.
